We stayed here recently on our way home after a week of camping in the Boundary Waters. Like others have said, the hotel is not much to look at from the outside. The inside hallways reeked of stale smoke, but the rooms were surprisingly fresh and clean. The breakfast was done well and offered a variety of food options. Pool... More

The Americinn Forest Lake has what I expect for an overnight stay while traveling. The room is clean and the bed comfortable. It's well furnished with a small sofa, two stuffed chairs, a nice flat screen TV with a decent selection of channels, a refrigerator, a microwave, a work desk and chair, free functioning WiFi, complimentary breakfast, and free parking....

A little hard to find its tucked behind the Taco Bell and you can't make a left turn out of the parking lot so you have to... More

My husband and I are 50-somethings that travel A LOT, from Maine to Montana. We generally like AnericInns, but this one just plain misses the mark when it comes to value. At $60 to $70 per night, we might be more tolerant, but at $94 the problems were glaring. The big issues: - Paper-thin walls! My husband went down to... More

When pulling up to the hotel, it looked rather run down and in need of some TLC. The exterior paint was peeling and falling off all over. The rooms were adequate but also had a run down feel to them. My major disappointment was the breakfast experience. Whatever food had been in the warmers was not replenished, even with over... More

Staff is friendly and very accommodating. Easy to get to right off the interstate. Restaurants and shopping close. Clean and quiet. They have been doing updates to the rooms and it is very nice with fridge and microwaves in the rooms and HD flat screen tv's

Old hotel, some remodeling, but not done with a lot of quality work. Maybe less than standard breakfast. I paid $89 per night and for what the hotel had to offer and the condition, I feel I over-paid. I would expect to pay $50-60 for that hotel. I have stayed at many hotels and big difference in price to quality... More

Relatives from out of state were visiting and decided to stay at the AmericInn in Forest Lake. Fleas in the bathtub and the entrance windows were cracked and held together with good old DUCT TAPE. They asked to speak with a manager and had to wait 3 HOURS before anyone could assist them. Needless to say, when they visit, they... More

Staff is extremely friendly and overly helpful and know the area very well and suggested places to eat in the area that turned out to be very good. Hope to stay at this hotel again in the future. Very clean and quiet place.
